Moor Hall Hotel & Spa donates £12,000 to 3 local charities
We’re pleased to announce that we recently presented cheques totalling £12,000 to three local charities: St Giles Hospice, The Cancer Support Centre and Sutton Support Services, which runs development programmes for adults with learning difficulties.
The money was raised during 2011 as part of the hotel’s 50th anniversary celebrations through special events, including a charity dinner featuring local music star Tony Christie, a staff football match, and through donations from hotel guests (an optional 50p was added to every hotel bill during the year).
“We are delighted to be able to support three charities that make a real difference to local people’s lives” commented Angela Burns, Chief Executive. “We would like to give a special thank you to our customers, suppliers and Barclays Bank who donated generously during the year, helping us to exceed our initial target of £10,000”.
The hotel’s fundraising efforts do not stop there. During 2012, the hotel will be supporting Breast Friends, a Sutton Coldfield based self help group who supports local women with breast cancer and Trees for Cities, a charity which runs projects transforming derelict urban areas into green spaces that the local community can enjoy.
